In Bloom, a Spring Blanket CAL

In Bloom, A Spring Themed Blanket Crochet Along 2020


Wow, I'm sure this Spring is not turning out how anyone was expecting it to. With most of us stuck inside social distancing this is the best time for us to turn to our hobbies to fill the time. I first started crocheting as a form of therapy to keep my mind calm in times of stress and have felt myself turning to this to keep my days feeling normal in these uncertain times.

For the month of April me and some amazing designers have collaborated together to make an amazing mystery blanket that we hope you will all enjoy. The theme all the designers were given was "In bloom" and they did not disappoint when it came to creativity.

How does it work?

From April 1st until April 30th each designer will present an 8x8 inch square representing the Spring season. All these squares can be combined together to create a personalised blanket. You can use all of them, or a combination of your favourites to create an amazing heirloom. 

Each days featured designer will be giving their design away as a FREE PDF download. To get these free downloads visit page each day of the month, where the pattern will be posted daily at 8am EST and Free until MIDNIGHT EST.  If you would like to get daily reminders for your squares you can follow this page by signing up to my newsletter and follow along on Instagram.

Spread the word. Pin this page to your favourite Pinterest Board.



Any purchases made through the links on this page will provide me with a small commission with no extra cost to you. This allows me to provide free crochet patterns to you lovely people. 

What do I need to do?


Every day you will visit this post where you will find the latest pattern. Under each pattern there will be instructions including a CODE to get the FREE PDF. You will be lead through to the designers blog where you will find within their page text that reads "Click HERE to download the free PDF download". Some designers will be including this free download either directly from their site or through Ravelry.

Supplies

To make it easier to follow along all designers worked from the same yarn palette. Some squares could include up to 4 colours, while others may have only 1.
We used Mighty Stitch yarn, which we were very lucky to have donated to us by We Crochet.

The colours chosen were as follows,

Alfalfa, Ivy, Mulberry, Wisteria, Fairytale, Bubblegum, Celestial, Sky, Cream, Oyster and Canary.

Wecrochet is back up and sending out deliveries. So if you want to grab the yarn we used for the original patterns click here.

I have made a list of companies who are still delivering to help you prepare for the CAL. This list will be updated once every 24 hours to help keep you informed.



If you would like to join in the CAL, join the CAL group over on Facebook. This is where you can ask any questions you may have on the patterns and share your blanket progress. You can also Make along with us on Instagram using the hashtags #inbloomblanketcal #springbloomsblanketcal and #bearrye . I will be sharing all your makes in my stories so everyone can make together!
